Though the journal aims to contribute to general economic knowledge it is also interested in applying theoretical and empirical insights to important current topics. These can include the increasing integration of the European Union disintegration and emergence of competing structures of governance between the public and private sectors in the former Soviet Union the search for new federal structures between the new states that have emerged and the devolution of powers to state governments in the United States. All these changes highlight the importance of institutions of interactions between different governments and of behavior when coercive power is absent. The journal is open to many approaches including mathematical analysis systematic observation simulation and empirical studies.
